Forum: web Subject: Embedded video links bug

There seems to be some kind of bug with some embedded video links.

The example is the page “http://web.archive.org/web/20140913152035/http://www.who.int/csr/disease/ebola/videos/en/” which, for the embedded video, reports "Sorry, the Wayback Machine does not have this video archived."

However, if one checks “http://web.archive.org/web/*/https://www.youtube.com/embed/jirs9qVq50k”, which I believe is one of the embedded videos in question, one finds that this video appears to have been archived 46 times since August 13th, 2014 (2 days after its original publication).

Even if one clicks on one of the 46 snapshots on the calendar at “http://web.archive.org/web/*/https://www.youtube.com/embed/jirs9qVq50k”, for example the first archive “http://web.archive.org/web/20140813092340/https://www.youtube.com/embed/jirs9qVq50k” or the most recent archive “http://web.archive.org/web/20140913042401/http://www.youtube.com/embed/jirs9qVq50k”, one finds that it begins to open the archive; it has something there; it displays the YouTube video play button and shows the typical initial video frozen frame, but then it blackscreens that reporting only "Sorry, the Wayback Machine does not have this video archived."

Thanks in advance for looking into it. Cheers

Reading that message is a true nightmare.
I wanted to view some deleted videos, but then this shitloaded message appeared.
And if a video plays, it has no HD, no annotations, no transcript, no statistics, no comments and the other metadata is missing too!
